PROJECT QUESTION - Item S-108.4, Page 177-S

Question: Item S-108.4 page 177-S, openings in sidewalks to install mailbox supports, in contractor�??s experience the postal service in this area refuses to install mailbox supports in sidewalks due to safety concerns. Where is this item proposed to be used on the project? Should item be used?

Response: Final mailbox locations will be set by the Engineer and Postmaster in the field and will be selected with safe clearance from trails as much as possible. Mailbox locations will be selected for installation outside of trail or sidewalk pavements wherever possible, but there may be some locations that will require mailbox supports to be within sidewalk or trail pavements. Any additional costs associated with constructing pavements around mailbox supports will be considered incidental to the project as stated in the special provision.
